    But...but...

    ...they wouldn't be croutons then.

    I'm not sure, but isn't this profiling?? Not ALL croutons are hard to stab. :eyebrows:

    We still used that in the '50s.

    Ours wasn't that high, but we also had some kind of device that centered on a pole but totally surrounded the pole. A bunch of us would get together and make it rock until we were banging against the pole. Since it was just resting on the top of the pole, it would also turn. I think it was called a Witch Hat, although the one in this picture is smaller than the one I remember.

    When I was a kid we switched from the deadly all-metal playground equipment to the "big toy" wooden/metal playground equipment, because getting creosote-soaked splinters was soooo much safer.

    And we still played "tackle the man" on a playground with gravel patches, so...

    I played on one of those too. We would get it spinning so fast while swinging, that the inside rubbed against the pole the full circle. Good times!
    I went to the same grade school that my dad did, and it was played on then already. He also played on this one, but the chains were missing when I attended.

    We had something very similar in elementary school, but the ring was much higher and designed to hang by your hands (lol, didn't stop some of the bigger kids from standing on it until a teacher caught them though).

    They called it a "may-pole," and it was put up while I was in the 3rd-4th grade IIRC (mid '60s). You wouldn't believe how long the line was to ride the thing when it was new. :D
